Text to polygons

edited January 2017 in General
Is there function that converts text objects to polygons so that they will print on the wafer?

    Text objects are basically just labels and won't appear on the mask. That's intentional since their purpose is to label a shape or a location, not to represent physical features.

    To create a physical text, use the TEXT PCell from the BASIC library. This cell has many options that allow customization in various ways. You can create such a PCell from a text object by selecting the text object and using "Edit/Selection/Convert to PCell".
